How to Merge Two Presentations in PowerPoint 2010

I design more than a thousand PowerPoint Presentations each month. ¬†However, I’ve been faced with incidents, where I had to merge Presentations or Copy each presentation Slide to Slide. Instead of putting up with all that Hassle, you can readily Merge Two Presentations on the go.

It could be really handy, if you need to re-use slides from your old Presentations or combine downloaded PowerPoint Presentations.

How to Merge Two Presentations

  • In the Slides Tab of your Interface, Select all the Slides you wish to merge with the second presentation. You can either use CTRL+A, to select every slide.
  • Click “Copy” from the ribbon or you can click on a Slide and Press Ctrl+C, to copy the Slides you wish to merge.
